nation, that the invitation waa ax tend
ed b7 the students, s that, the faculty
and trustees had nothing to do with
the matter. : And another reason ad-
vanced has been that the invitation,
that of asking -for an address at the

ual one extended to a former graduate,
or a man who had a public following.
Accepting the situation in its best

fatuous, and to the ordinary person,
it seems remarkable that any speaker
should be invited to address the great

New Bern, N. C, May 15. 1906.
WEAKNESS IN MUNICIPAL OWNER
SHIP. Theoreioally, there is so much in
municipal ownership of public utilities,
that the practical carrying out of its
attractive features nppears simple, and
of no serious moment, and for a muni
cipality to take over and run water,
lights, sewerage, and even transpor
tation, appeals to tax payers, and the
trade is made, without the first assur
ance thnt the conduct of these proper
ties will be along practical and business
It is the failure to assure the practi
cal, that works the evil, for municipal
ownership is a general ownership, and
a general ownership results too easily
into its being no special business of any
citizen or tax payer, to look into or in
quire after the conduct of the proper
ties under control. This leaves the
management to a few. who soon find
that they have only themselves to ac
count to, that people are too busy to
demand accountings, and tax payeis
accept any kind of report, just :sj there
is the appearance of all being right,
and light, water, sewerage, etc., are
No personal business can be c onduct
ed successfully, unless there be care
ful management, yet tax payers wil
bond and pledge themselves for hun
dreds of thousands of dollars, and then
lot a half dozen men have complete con
trol and charge of the properties for
which they, the tax payers, stand lia
ble, and only tbe most meager account
ings will be gratefully accepted, when
if the matter was a personal business
transaction, everything would receive
the closest scrutiny.
It is this indifference and neglect on
the part of tax payers to take note of
municipal affairs, which makes muni
cipal ownership of public utilities a
hazardous and expensive matter. The
theory of municipal ownership, with its
great saving to each tax payer, the
extra servico given, and the great pro
fits resulting, can all be placed in fig
ures beforehand, but it is a failure, un
less the tax payers shall give earnest
and serious heed to the conduct of
these public utilities, for unless this is
done the tax payers are to wake up
some day with broken down properties,
and a big bond issue to make good, be
cause no sinking fund has been pro
vided against the day of reckoning.
And it is not necessary to go far from
home to make application of these
. weaknesses in municipal ownership.

THE SERIOUSNESS OF LOST
PRESENT STATUS OF MA
The announcement of the invitation
to Mr. .Marion Butler to make an ad
dress at th Tune commencement of
the Univers v nt North Carolina, has
provoked both public and private, com
tnent, most f it of a tenor of surprise
and chagrir nd even from those not
personally interested, there has been
expressed enuine surprise.
That either surprise or disapproval
has .been expressed, by press or indi
vidua!, indicates that Mr. Butler must
have some status different from the
average university graduate, or any
' personage who may be deemed worthy
of the honor of being invited to make
- an address at a commencement of
For the most part the press of
Nortj Carolina has been very quiet on
this matter, of Mr. Butler s invitation,
' no question it being due to the respect
f lt for the educational institution to
which the ex-Senator has been invited
The South Carolina press has been de
...i eidedly frank in its expressions on the
- - subject, and its criticism bas been one
of lurprise that such an invitation bas

tuck t personal record made sine his

The young child first attending school
eannot of course recognize that tardi
ness at school or a day'B absence from
school, is a specially serious matter, or
loss to the child which so disregards at
At this season of the year, the teach
er has much to contend with in keeping
up the attendance of pupils, for almost
everything serves as an excuse for a
pupil's tardiness or absence for one day
or several days. Those parents who will
visit the graded school in this city, or
those who will see that this season is
particularly hard upon the teacher, who
must use all means to sustain school in
terest so tliat the pupil will not be lured
away by outside attractions, and so
lose time from school, and so suffer at
the close of the school year, the result
being a setback, or the necessity of go
ing over again at thenext school term,
the lessons neglected during this terra.
In a recent lecture before the Wo
man's Club in this city, by Mrs. Cotton,
on the child's study department, the
peaker made a most able presentation
of the subject, and specially was the
eceasity dwelt upon, the need of the
parent's co-operation with the teach
ers. There is much stress, rather over
much, on the teacher's responsibility, as
the person to successfully solve the
Droblem of school attendance. Too
much is expected of the teacher as the
one atone to solve the child's mental,
moral and physical needs, and solving
these, to direct the child and success
fully develop and produce the well bal
anced man and woman.
But to prove this success, the teach
er must be given the child every school
day, and the child must be on time,
and in a mood which shall give the
teacher a receptive pupil. How is the
child to be on time, regular every, day
at school, and in a thoroughly receptive
mood, unless there be the home influ
ence of the parent to give this daily im'
petus to tho child, and so prepare it for
the teacher ? It is the parent first, who
must impress the child with the seri
ousness of each day's value at school,
that a day lost, is as it were, a bargain
lost, which can never be found again.
If the child should be early impressed
with this idea, there will be no need of
tbe push, the hurry, the excitement,
which so often is to be found in homes
every morning as children, and. parents
struggle together, to get. tb children
away to school. The child feeling the
seriousness of the school day and is so
impressed that it Jjeeda jno urging to
get ready, but is daily found, featjy and
in trim, and enh trouble of school
attendance will vanish, and the teach
ers work will be half done, as the child
comes prepared and liking every school
duty. It would be education with no
compulsion of any kind, ...
